Pages 16

The term “cinematography” was created in the fi lm industry to describe the process of creating images on fi lm; as the use of fi lm has diminished somewhat with the widespread availability of digital video and high defi nition formats, the term “cinematography” has expanded. Now it is a generic term encompassing all aspects of camera work, including the creative aspects involved with making aesthetically pleasing images and the technical aspects involved with using cameras, lights, and other equipment.
